______________ Fred C. Fettinger, who died April 26 while recovering from surgery, _______________. Services and interment will be private.
Mr. Fettinger was born May 13, 1926 in Augsburg, Germany, the first born of Leonhard Friedrich and Babette Kreszentia Maria Gutschenreiter Fettinger. The family settled in Waukegan in 1929.
A 1943 graduate of Zion High School, Mr. Fettinger attended Purdue University and joined the Navy during World War II. Upon discharge from the service, he began his life career with the First National Bank of Waukegan, where he served for 42 years. While at the bank, he met Dorothy Jacobs, whom he married on June 17, 1950.
The Fettingers moved to Millburn in 1960. Mrs. Fettinger has owned and operated Fettinger's Realty Company there since 1964.

After his retirement, the Fettingers traveled often. They avoided planned tours and visited parts of foreign lands less seen by tourists. Their travels took them to Portugal, Spain, France, Italy, Turkey, Egypt, New Zealand, Australia and China.
Mr. Fettinger is survived by his wife, Dorothy; his mother- in-law, Clara Crump; two sisters, Marianne (Warren) Perkins of Wilmette and Barbara Lanphier of Harvard, Ill.; his four children, Fred (Marilyn), Ann, David (Renee) and Stephen (Esther); seven grandchildren and three great-grandchildren.
